Obama's Foreign "Funny Money"

The New York Post covers the Obama campaign's apparent acceptance of foreign donations, by dint of failing to put proper controls on the web site for donations.

Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens.

Walker said he used his actual street address in England but entered Arkansas as his state with the Schenectady, NY, ZIP code of 12345.

“When I did Romney’s, the payment got rejected on the grounds that the address on the card did not match the address that I entered,” he said. “Romney’s Web site wanted the code from the back of card. Barack Obama’s didn’t.”

In September, Obama’s campaign took in more than $2 million from donors who provided no ZIP code or incomplete ZIP codes, according to data posted on the Federal Election Commission Web site.

Given the press' performance in the other debates, I'm not optimistic -- but might it be possible that tomorrow night, Bob Schieffer might deign to ask the President of the United States why he fails to take even rudimentary precautions to ensure that his campaign is not benefitting from illegal foreign donations?
